We’re days away from the official start of summer and Lemont is already planning to spend the season in style. All through June, enjoy events perfect for the whole family: from music to movies to keeping you active, there’s something happening nearly every day of the week.
The Lemont Farmer’s Market, a longstanding village tradition, is now open every Tuesday AND the third Friday of the month, offering the best from local growers, eateries, and businesses. And the Sunset Soiree Concert series continues all summer, with the best local bands playing free outdoor shows, with historic downtown Lemont providing the perfect backdrop.
Need a mood booster? Every other week, join in “Yoga for a Cause” – your donation of any amount will be donated to a different charity of choice each month, while you get fit. Or take in the Rock Pit Skate Contest on June 25, where top skaters battle for awards and entertain spectators in Centennial Park. Or gear up for the classic car fun of Lemont Legends Cruise Nights, happening Wednesdays starting June 15.
For fun everyone can enjoy, the Lemont Park District has planned multiple FREE “Pack the Park” events, including Starlight Movie Nights in Connemara Park on June 14 and Covington Park on June 30. Both offer free hot dogs, contests, prizes, and a family-friendly movie on the big screen at dusk.
Top off your June with “Freedom Days,” a full slate of spectacular pre-Independence Day celebrations, including the Freedom 5K on June 26, the Sky High Freedom Kite Fly on June 27, and the Stars and Stripes Tribute to our Veterans on June 28.
And the best part about all this summer fun? It’ll be going on next year, too – just a hop, skip, and a jump from your new home at Montefiori!
